"dead" technologies ( Any thoughts on placement of company contact information?

Fax isn't dead, it's just extremely uncool, unhip, un-whatever. Anyone
dealing with businesses outside of the high-tech bubble, businesses
overseas, signed documents or people in the security sphere is probably
going to have some sort of fax capability independent of having an
actual fax machine.

Being able to accept faxes is no worse than being able to accept email,
physical mail, or phone calls. If that's how my customer/client prefers
to communicate with me, so be it.

Any thoughts on placement of company contact information?

Over the past few years, I¹ve been imploring smaller companies who have
brochure-ware sites or have a limited product offering to put their contact
information (address, tel, email, fax) and if need by, their support
telephone and email on the homepage. Usually, in the header or footer
depending on the overall site design.

People think I read everything ...

I barely ever hit the "trends" link in Google reader, but I'm a little bored
and clicked it.
What did I learn? Well relevant to this community is ...
I only read 28% of the average 37+ messages that come in a day.

So there! ... ;-)

What was further interesting is that blogs w/ less volume don't always get
more read.

Thesis and Internship

Hi,

I am a MSc student in Interaction Design. I will be done with my courses
before summer and I am looking for companies where I can work as a paid
intern and do my thesis along. Does anybody have an intern position
after Summer Next year?

I am studying at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. I am
interested in Ubicomp. I specialize in Signal processing. Have worked in
Java for more than 3 years. I also have experience in HCI and speech
technology.

SnifTag a Practical Application

I have a real world practical application that might make SnifTag
useful. One of my beloved English Bulldogs has seizures. She only has
the a few times a year, so it's not as bad as it could be. However,
the more they have seizures and the longer they last, the more likely
they are to become more frequent. The longer the seizure, the more
dangerous it gets, as it could literally raise their body temperature
and cook their brain.

Thankfully, has only had three. However, several months ago, my wife
and I came home to find that she had seizured while we were out.
